I remember when Episode 1 came out, and I was looking at the soundtrack and seeing one of the songs was Qui-Gon's funeral theme, then 2 came out and my son was looking at the toys only to discover the Anakin with severed arm. Now the same thing with Termininator (tho one of the trailer's spoils the surprise also)*. I try really hard not to read or see anything that might spoil a movie or tv show, then company's ruin it. I just don't understand why the suprise reveal items aren't at least delayed until after the movie has been out a month or so.
I think it is a huge spoiler to find out that the Marcus character is a terminator, and it sucks that I had to find out before seeing the film.

I ran into the same 'death of Qui-Gon Jinn' issue. I was pretty ticked off about that. Couldn't they have just called it "Qui-Gon's theme" ???

I'm not sure about the Marcus character being a Terminator being a spoiler, as it looks like that might be a central theme of the movie as Marcus thinks/tries to be human well the human resistance deals with this new breed of Terminator.
But yes, I agree with you completely.
What I'm worried/wondering about is the RoC toys. The first waves were very set in being on characters that appear in the movie. The later waves, not so much, which is fine, that's not what this is about. What I'm worried/wondering about is if these figures that aren't in the movie come out before the movie and are loved by someone and it influences them to go see the movie and that character isn't in the movie....

I came to the realization the if Empire Strikes Back came out today, the trailer would have Vader telling Luke' I am your father".
Trailers today are made for the manic and dumb, as are some of the movies too

Totally. Been there and done that more than a few times with soundtracks myself.

The exact same thing happened to me with both the soundtrack and the Anakin figure. very frustrating. I suspect we're seeing spoilers in the ROC toys and just won't realize it until the movie.

anyways, totally agree. the original Clone Wars Monopoly game ruined Order 66 for me as I knew like 2 months before what it was and how it would go down.
